    Just when we were thinking it was becoming safe for sharks to be in Australian waters, the Queensland government in an incredible display of ecological insensitivity has proposed a shark fin fishery in the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area and in marine parks in Queensland waters. This announcement came just as Rob Stewart's award winning film Sharkwater opens in Australia. This film which features Sea Shepherd's efforts to stop shark finning is raising awareness of the plight of sharks worldwide. Talk about a confused Government, they are going to have to make up their minds, either allow foreign ships and the crew to kill the sharks for the fins, or cease it altogether, including a ban on this proposed shark fin fishery. I don't remember voting on whether this is what Queenslanders want? Anna Bligh's reign may be short lived if she bulldozes all the things she wants into fruition. Someone has already commented on the movie, but they were unaware of this new developement. http://au.answers.yahoo.com/question/ind...

  • Good grief?

    I have just read about Peter Garrett being sickened by the whale slaughter.....so why sit on your hands and do sweet F.A. If it sickens you, then do something about it. All you in government are too busy complaining and doing all that sound sympathetic to the masses, but when are you going to do something constructive? Heaven knows you're well... show more

All you in government are too busy complaining and doing all that sound sympathetic to the masses, but when are you going to do something constructive? Heaven knows you're well over-paid , do something to earn it. Make waves and upset the Japanese, they will not take us seriously until we get down and dirty. Stop leaving it to those like Greenpeace and the Sea Shepherd to do what you know you should be doing.
